Watch What Crappens, the Nation's Hottest Podcast About Reality TV, to Appear at SXSW on 3/12

Live Performances of the Bravo-Roasting Hit Podcast now Drawing International Audiences

LOS ANGELES - Feb. 20, 2019 - EntSun -- Watch What Crappens' wickedly funny podcasters – Ben Mandelker and Ronnie Karam – announced today that they will be bringing their amazingly popular podcast to the prestigious SXSW Festival & Conferences on March 12 in Austin, TX where they will perform live. Crappens is the hit podcast that lovingly throws shade and delivers consistently good-natured but snarky commentary about Bravo TV five days a week. The podcast, which now has 1.7 million plus listeners, will be live at the festival's Patreon House of Creativity stage, March 12th at 12:30 pm, as part of a collaboration with the podcast platform Acast.

The SXSW appearance comes on the heels of the duo's live performance at Just For Laughs Northwest in Vancouver on February 22nd, which also features Seth Rogen, Aziz Ansari, Whitney Cummings, Gabriel Iglesias, Ken Jeong, and other modish comedians. This is Crappens' second Just For Laughs appearance after last year's Montreal festival in July.

Watch What Crappens (http://www.watchwhatcrappens.com)  Live reports that their live appearances across the country sell out almost immediately. Fans (including some Bravo-lebrities themselves) show up at theaters dressed in costumes, homemade t-shirts, or even a Patricia Caftan – with many traveling hundreds (and in some cases, thousands) of miles for the experience.

"It's crazy," says Mandelker. "Our fans are amazing – really devoted. They've come to our shows from as far away as Sweden, Scotland, and Japan!" For those glued to their earpieces, however, the podcast that dissects the latest episodes of TV's most popular reality shows now airs five days a week.

Karam adds that Bravo stars love the podcast too. "Their support has been just incredible," he says. Stassi Schroeder, Ariana Madix, and Tom Sandoval from Vanderpump Rules; Captain Lee Rosbach, Kate Chastain, and Captain Sandy Yawn from Below Deck; Kathryn Dennis and Patricia Altschul of Southern Charm; and Leeanne Locken of Real Housewives of Dallas have all put in appearances.

For the uninitiated, Watch What Crappens lampoons the weekly happenings and delicious drama of Bravo-lebrities. This funny and brash podcast has racked up nominations for "Best Podcast" by LA Weekly and earned praise from Mental Floss, which called it "laugh-out-loud" in its list of "19 TV Podcasts You Need to Hear." Buzzfeed called Crappens "one of the most influential Housewives podcasts." Crappens is usually found in the Top Ten iTunes podcasts in the TV/Film genre, and the Top 100 overall.

About Watch What Crappens

Watch What Crappens started as a lark sometime in 2012 by Ben Mandelker and Ronnie Karam. The two friends just happened to like talking about shows they watched the night before. So did lots of others, and their audiences grew and grew. Now represented by APA, which also reps Here's The Thing with Alec Baldwin and The Ladygang, they decided to give live theater a go in 2017.  The duo was featured at the 2018 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, where they'll be back next summer. Bustle called Watch What Crappens "dependably fantastic"; The Huffington Post declared Crappens the "go to podcast for all things Bravo"; and Buzzfeed ranked the show on its list of "22 Fantastic Podcasts To Make Your Commute Less Shitty." Watch What Crappens is available on iTunes, Google Play, Soundcloud, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, Spotify, and anywhere else where podcasts are found. The podcast airs five times a week.
